has been assessed as Least Concern. This is a widespread species that is found in commercial quantities throughout its range. It is commercially harvested as a food source throughout its range and while stocks are in decline in some parts of its range, stocks appear to be stable in the northern fisheries which constitute the greater proportion of the population.
