Marine question

Dear DMLers,
I was wondering why Ichthyosaurs disappeared before the end of the Cretaceous. 
They seemed by the time fully adapted to deep sea life, contra the Plesiosaurs 
more probably coastal, and, at least to my eyes, morphologically better adapted 
than the Mosasaurs. Competition whith fish, sharks?
