Bangana dero is widely distributed and it is present within protected areas. Although some threats have been identified these are not considered as major and widespread. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern.
Information on the population data of this species is available from four out of nine surveyed locations (rivers) in Nepal.
The species is found in some of the national parks of Nepal, e.g., Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, Chitwan National Park and Karnali National Park. There is a need for improved habitat protection at sites where this species is known to occur. Further survey work is needed to determine whether or not this species is experiencing a decline, or is undergoing natural population fluctuations.
