Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable B1ab(ii,iii,v) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2008
Date Assessed: 2008-01-01
Assessor(s): Freyhof, J. & Kottelat, M.
Reviewer(s): Bogutskaya, N., & Smith, K. (IUCN Freshwater Biodiversity Unit)
Justification:
The species is known from Salgir, Alma and Bel Bek drainages in the southern Crimea, where it is still abundant (extent of occurrence of less than 9,000 km²). However it is becoming very rare in some parts of the Alma drainage due to intensive water abstraction for irrigation. More habitat will be lost and the species will continue to decline if water abstraction continues to increase as is predicted.
