A: Sentence does not make any sense. Parts of sentences are not put in right place.

B. This refers 'a circumstance' to 'cod or haddok'.

C: Correct. Commas are put at correct places. Correct pronouns are used.

D: When we use 'Unlike' in sentence, two parts should be parallel. This sentence compares 'cod & haddok' to 'size limits on catching of monkfish'. Besides, 'by being overfished' is wrong construction (passive voice).

E: Same problem of Parallelism as in option D.

A - jumbled up - modifier problem, pronoun error(their)
which contributes to its depletion
B - them and they should logically should refer back to monkfish(singular)
C - Correct - The legal limits contributes to its(monkfish) depletion ...
D - Incorrect comparison; "by being overfished" awkward.
E - Incorrect comparison; their - plural pronoun.

How is D wrong?

In C and D "which" refers to "monkfish" implying monkfish contributes to its depletion. This change the meaning.

A seems to be correct.
