Your best bet would be to look at a textbook on marine biology or
oceanography.  By reading--or just skimming through--a few chapters I'm
sure you will be able to find plenty of interesting questions for a test.
One that comes to my mind is:  Since tides and lunar cycles are important
to the development of many marine organisms, how would life in the oceans
be different if there was no moon?

There are also lots of interesting questions about how the marine biome is
different from terrestrial ones.

Good luck discussing this with your group.
