disparaitre sous les produits

Hi, I have a translation on fisheries to do and want to make sure I understand this sentence properly:

"Les peuplements [d'animaux et de vegetaux] disparaissent sous les produits solides verses dans la mer"

I assume it means they become extinct but I don't understnad why they use 'sous' in that case. Perhaps it simply means 'disappear beneath...'

Any help would be very welcome!!

Thanks,
Cat

    Bonjour Catherine,
    Bienvenue sur le forum !

    Je pense que ces produits se déposent au fond de la mer et recouvrent les animaux et les végétaux qui peuplent le sol (coraux, anémones, gorgones, algues, etc.)
