Use of "and" indicates that we need to use the plural verb "have" instead of singular verb "has". E is obviously wrong, so the only answer left is D.

Ok let me take this opportunity:
1. There were two things which convinced a. rise in the price of crabmeat b. increase in demand. So we should use "have". --- A B and C are out--- Left with D and E.
2. In E "to try and harvest and sell" is incorrect. Floridians have to "try to harvests" not "try and harvest". So E is out. ------- Left with D.
