D. region that maintain that their compliance with regulations pertaining to the safety of marine life in the area is 'that maintain' is modifies 'region'. It doesn't make sense. It is the companies that maintain, not region.

E. region maintain that their compliance with regulations that pertain to the safety of marine life in the area, which is Which refers to 'area'. Sentence doesn't make sense.
