a)of the Chesapeake Bay area
b)in and around the Chesapeake Bay => this change the meaning, and make the area of these residents is difficult to determine
c)of the Chesapeake Bay => this change the meaning that the resident only "of bay", not in water. So, how overfishing can harm these resident.
d)around the vicinity of the Chesapeake Bay => "around the vicinity" is redundant and difficult to determine which area.
e)living in and around the Chesapeake Bay area => awkward


Finally, I chose the most simply answer. A is the correct one.
