D is best choice.
Parallellism - 'growing...,cutting...and raising...'

C is incorrect as it changes the meaning.

I would go for C.

'their and they' in A B D E are not clear whether it refers to suppliers or fish.

The OA is D. However, I don't understand why it uses the pronoun "they" versus "their growth rate"? Any ideas?

after "as fast as" we need to have a full clause , "there growth rate" lacks of a verb to make a complete clause. D is better for this reason.
