Justification:
This species is present in Black Sea, Sea of Azov and Caspian Sea, including tributaries. In the Mediterranean Sea, it occurs only in the Evros and Strymon systems, which reach north Aegean Sea. It is locally abundant but there is no information about the current population trend. This species is threatened by increasing salinity and pollution but there is no data to determine how this is affecting the population of this species at this time. For the Mediterranean Sea, this species is listed as Least Concern but research is recommended to determine the population trend before this species is reassessed.
