Tricky one. Got C.

to sell and to predict are already parallel.

how will the fisheries sell and predict? taking advantage of X, standardizing Y & Z

Hence C

Edit: B is correct. I clearly jumped some hoops unnecessarily expecting much trickery.

"taking advantage of off-season demand" modifying the " fisheries to sell the shellfish year-round"

Will go for B.

This one tests parallelism and modification

commercial farming of lobster will...to sell...to standardize..., and to predict
taking advantage of off-season demand modifies the action of sell the shellfish year-round. B is correct.
