Previously considered endemic to the Mediterranean Sea, Pomatoschistus bathi has recently been recorded from the northern Black Sea. In the Mediterranean, P. bathi is known from scattered records from southwestern France to the Turkish Aegean coast. It is assumed to have a wider distribution within this range as it is likely to be under-represented in surveys. Population data are not available, but the population is assumed to be stable. There are no known widespread threats. Therefore, P. bathi is assessed as Least Concern.

|Range Description:||Pomatoschistus bathi is present in the Mediterranean Sea, from southwestern France (Miller 1986) to the Turkish Aegean coast, and has recently been recorded from the Crimea in the Black Sea (Vasil'eva and Bogorodksy 2004, Boltachev and Karpova 2013). Scattered records of P. bathi are from the Gulf of Trieste (Bonaca and Lipej 2005), Ligurian Sea (Tunesi et al. 2005), the Lavezzi Islands (Dufour et al. 2007) and eastward into the Sea of Marmara. Kovačić et al. (2012) and Lipej and Orlando Bonaca (2005) record the species from the eastern Adriatic. Pomatoschistus bathi is found to 14 m depth (Patzner et al. 2011).|
