Red List Criteria
The population size and trend of this species is unknown. However, current evidence indicates that this species is relatively abundant throughout the subHimalayan region. In Nepal, this species has been encountered at 0.17 CPUE (Jha 2009)
The threats to this species are unknown, since the impact of potential threats (especially those of an anthropogenic nature) remains unknown. The current threats to aquatic biodiversity in all of its known distribution have also not been adequately identified. Although Prasad et al. (1997)identified habitat modification via the removal of river substrate (for construction) and overfishing as accidental bycatch as major threats for this species, no empirical studies have been conducted on the effects of either of these supposed threats on fish populations. These are deemed to be based on speculation on should not be considered here.
More research about the distribution and the biology of this species is needed, as there is insufficient information available. Potential threats to this species also need to be identified, and its effects on populations of this fish better understood. the species has been assessed as 'Endangered' in India (Lokra et al. 2010).
