C? pronouns in the other choices seems to be confusing suppliers and fish.

I think fish can be percieved as both plural and singular...but here it is plural.

Yes, Agree with C

They is wrong in D and E, can not resolve the antecedent.

A and B are faulty because they are comparing the action of growing with the natural growth rate..

My answer is A

Before I proceed to give my reasons, I must complement Pauline for her selection of questions.

----
A their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment
Nothing wrong with A. Maintains the tense throughout, and is in active voice

B their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut
OUT - the second part is in a different tense, besides, isn't the second part in passive voice?

C growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment
OUT - Changes the meaning of the original sentence

D they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment
OUT - Changes the meaning of the original sentence

E they grow naturally, with their feed allotment cut
OUT - "they grow naturally", changes the meaning of the original sentence

I chose D. The only reason why I chose D over A is because growth rate in A is a noun. To maintain parallelism, u gotta choose a verb (grow) to be compatible with growing.
