Regalecus glesne are rarely observed. When observed, they are usually injured, as their standard habitat is sufficiently deep as to not interact with humans often. As such, there is little way of knowing how threatened they are beyond via extrapolation from limited numbers of sightings. However, they make no appearance on conservation lists such as the IUCN list (IUCN, 2010), and so are not considered endangered.
