Justitia longimanus has been assessed as Data Deficient. While this is a widespread species, there is little data available on the harvest levels or possible population trends. Further research is needed on harvest levels and the extent to which it is harvested before a more accurate assessment can be made.
|Range Description:||This species is known from several circum-tropical regions of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans (Holthuis 1991): including the Western Indian Ocean; the Hawaiian archipelago; the Gilbert Islands; Tahiti; Bermuda; southern Florida in the USA; and the Caribbean arc from Cuba to Isla Margarita in Venezuela. This species is also known from Espiritu Santo in southern Brazil (Holthuis 1991), suggesting it may occur along the entire tropical east coast of South America.|
