My answer is D

We need parallelism here so B and E are out...."Growing them....cutting their...raising them..."

C....IMO, I don't think suppliers can grow fish "naturally" so its out

Between A & D, D is more parallel to "Growing fish".

A seems correct as is.
twice as fast as their natural growth rate

is correct comparison.

Think D too...

It has the same parallel structure as A, but is more pregnant.

I narrowed it to A and D.
Their and They in A and D refer not to suppliers but to fish.
Given this, what is wrong with A? How is D more parallel than A?

I choose answer A.

C is wrong becasue naturally is used in refernce to the growth rate and not in reference to the method of growing the fish. C distorts the meaning by suggesting that the suppliers choose the natural way of growing fish.

I think, because the producers can't gro them naturally; the fishes will grow naturally ( without the producers care)

With a bit of hesitation,
I feel that Their in A&B and They in D&E are creating confusion, who the Their/They is referring to.

I guess C corrects the same....

They/their create ambiguity in A/D. C should be correct.

the answer is (D).

I guess I am a bit confused as to why "they grow naturally" works better than "their natural growth rate"

thanks all.

in their natural growth rate
their is incorrectly referring to "suppliers" NOT fishes because fish is singular (if sentense says "fish" not fishes)
