Coelorinchus sexradiatus is a rare species known only from type specimens collected from the deep waters off Jolo and Tawi-tawi, southwestern Mindanao. Threats to this species are unknown, except that it is taken as bycatch in other fisheries. It is therefore listed as Data Deficient. The type localities should be revisited to validate and improve information on the population, habitat and ecology of the species. Conservation actions for the species should include catch monitoring and regulation.

Use and Trade [top]

Use and Trade: Several Coelorinchus species are utilized for fish meal or fish paste.

Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): There are no major threats known to this species, except possibly from fisheries. Most members of this genus are found in relatively shallow waters of the continental slope (e.g., in depths between 150–800 m) making them susceptible to capture by commercial trawls (Cohen et al. 1990). Several species are taken as bycatch from trawls and utilized for fish meal or fish paste.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: There are no species-specific conservation measures in place for this species.
