Correct Option (a) Fishes

Explanation:

Non-degradable chemicals enter the food chain and that concentration goes up as they move up in the food chain. This phenomenon is called biomagnification. Naturally, in a food chain, Phytoplankton → Zooplankton → Fishes → Birds, it would be highest in fishes.
