Sudis hyalina is widely distributed in the Atlantic Ocean. Though rare, it is thought to be broadly distributed in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean, including the Mediterranean. Population data are limited. It is not fished commercially, and there are no known major threats. Therefore, S. hyalina is listed as Least Concern.
|Range Description:||Sudis hyalina is broadly distributed in the Atlantic Ocean from about 50°N to 40°S, including the Mediterranean Sea (Post 1984). In the Mediterranean Sea (FAO 1987, Jennings 2000), this species is present in the eastern Mediterranean Sea (Bello 1990, Golani et al. 2006), north and west Aegean Sea, Greece (Papaconstantinou et al. 1994), Anzio Harbour, Latium, central Tyrrhenian Sea (Psomadakis et al. 2006), Strait of Sicily (Costa 1991, 1999; Ragonese et al. 2001), Libyan coasts (UNEP/FAO 1995), Gulf of Genoa (Siccardi and Montanari 1997) and the Ionian Sea (Parenzan 1970).
