Correct option is
B

fish

Options B and C: The plural form of the noun 'fish' will remain 'fish'. Hence option B is correct.
'Fishes' is a noun that refers to multiple species of fish and is spoken in the scientific sense. Hence it's not a suitable option for the given sentence.
Option A: The word 'fishens' does not exist in standard English language.
Option D: Similarly, 'fishe's' does not exist in the English language.
Hence options A and D are wrong.
