Red List Criteria
While this species is considered to be relatively abundant (Morato et al. 2000), human fishing pressures have impacted the abundance of this species in islands around the Canarian Archipelago. In the same area, two larger serranid species have been severely overfished and stringent management measures for the area have been recommended (Tuya et al. 2006).
This species is commercially harvested throughout its range.
Monitoring of the harvest levels, extent of harvest and habitat status of this species is needed.
