I'm a big fan of Walt Brown's hydroplane theory, www.creationscience.com. He received his PhD from MIT in engineering. The basics of it relating to this question is that the flood started when "the fountains of the great deep burst open". He believes this was a layer of water under the crust of the earth that fractured and under much force shot out of earths crust. 
The fossil record shows a sampling of what was quickly burried in this process, which was a ton of sea life, but plenty obviously survived to populate our current waters.

No scientific theory can explain creation. Science starts it's work because there are certain laws in the nature and the creatures whom God has created. For example Newton's laws were very much in operation before Newton discovered them.Another example if our bodies do not function as per definite phylogical and / or anatomical laws no doctor can treat us. We can today explain what light can do but We cannot say - What is light. There are no absolutes in science. Only our Lord is I un hanging and He is absolute. It requires an eye of faith either to accept God's word or reject it.
But I praise God that though I was schooled as a Nuclear Chemist God by His mercy and grace opened my eyes to accept God 's Word at its face value. I believe He has created everything -things visible things invisible things in heaven and thing in earth by His Son Lord Jesus Christ and for Him and for His glory. It is very simple to accept In the beginning God created the heaves and the earth.

Some of them were destroyed because of the earth crust movement when the the water under burst up. We see these aquatic creatures today in the fossil form; preserved at the exact time of their burial, and in their acts of what they were doing at that moment.

The forty days of rain plus the foundations of the earth bursting forth caused all creatures on the earth & in the air to die. There were some sea creatures, the larger and more dangerous ones mentioned in the 40th and 41st chapters of Job that didn’t survive the flood, thankfully. 

We have all seen fossils whether up close or in a book that also died from the flood waters perhaps as they receded back down the mountain slopes.

If the event happened on a worldwide scale, at the time supposed in this case, the salt content in oceans would have been altered significantly, which of course would have been devastating to many less resilient species, exterminating many completely. This is of course in addition to previously mentioned changes a worldwide flood would cause. There is no current proof of any worldwide flood during this time period, with many civilizations in other parts of the world surviving throughout, unemcumbered by legend.
