Does this mean that multicellulars might have had to evolve quite a bit beyond a lake environment creature to colonize the oceans? I wonder if that evolution will ever be detected in the fossil record, because if salt water is some kind of resistance barrier to the development of multicellular forms it will have huge ramifications for exobiology and our place in the cosmos.

I doubt salt water is a hindrance to anything. As an aside, the early oceans were fresh not salty. Once the life began it probably moved right on to the oceans as unicellular. This is assuming that the story is correct in it's presuppositions.
