has been assessed as Least Concern. This broadly distributed species is harvested as a food source and for the aquarium trade, however these are not considered to be major threats to this species at present. Further research and monitoring of the harvest levels and population numbers of this species is needed, to determine if it is likely to suffer significant population declines in the future.
