Why must organisms of the estuary be adapted to varying levels of salinity?

Because at one end of the estuary is the Sea which has salt water and at the other is the river which has fresh water. Along the estuary as the two waters mix, there will be varying levels of salt in the water and these will change as the tide goes in and out and the river periodically floods. Organisms living at one location on the estuary therefore have to be able to deal with varying levels of salt in the water that surrounds them.
