Eunephrops cadenasi has been assessed as Least Concern because it has a relatively large distribution, and has recently been described as occurring in 'sizeable quantities'. It is harvested in parts of its range, but not at a scale that warrants concern.
|Range Description:||This deep sea species is found in the western Atlantic off the Bahamas; in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique and Colombia; and in the Gulf of Mexico north of Cuba (Holthuis 1991, Paulmier and Gervain 1994, Tavares 2002).
The type locality for this species is the Nicholas Channel, south of the Cay Sal Bank (Bahamas) at a depth of 550-576 m (Lat. 23º21'N, Long. 79º58'W) (Holthuis 1991).

|Population:||This species has been described as occuring in 'sizeable quantities' in Guadeloupe (Tavares 2002).|
|Habitat and Ecology:||This species occurs at depths between 434 and 607 m, but is most commonly found between 450 and 550 m (Tavares 2002).|
|Use and Trade:||This species is not currently being trawled for on a commercial scale, but is harvested in Guadeloupe using cylindrical traps (Tavares 2002). In Martinique it is not viewed as an important commercial species, but its large size and high value does make it of potential interest to fisheries throughout its range (Paulmier and Gervain 1994), including in the Antilles (Poupin 1994).|
This species is harvested in parts of its range, but not on a scale that is of concern to the sustainability of the global population.
There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species.
