IUCN Red List Assessment
Red List Category
Red List Criteria
Hippocampus camelopardalis previously was listed in 1996 as Vulnerable (VU A2cd) under old criteria. This assessment was based on suspected past declines in occupancy, occurrence and habitat, as well as on potential levels of exploitation. In reassessing the species under the new criteria and with greater taxonomic understanding we find that no appropriate data on biology and ecology, habitat, abundance or distribution are available for this species. Further research is needed. Assessed as Data Deficient under the new criteria.
