McIlwain, J. & Craig, M.T. Contributor/s Justification
This is a large species with relatively restricted distribution. There are no reliable records of fishery or information on its biology. It is captured by subsistence fisheries but is unlikely to be heavily fished. It occurs in a number of marine protected areas in parts of its range. It is therefore listed as Least Concern.
