Assessment Information [top]

Red List Category & Criteria: Vulnerable B2ab(iii,v) ver 3.1
Year Published: 2006
Date Assessed: 2006-01-31
Assessor(s): Crivelli, A.J.
Reviewer(s): Carmona, J. & Darwall, W. (Mediterranean Workshop, Dec. 2004)
Justification:
S. aradensis is relatively abundant but occurs in only three rivers and has a small range (area of occupancy (AOO) <2,000 km²). Water extraction, drought and the introduction of exotic fish species are threats to the three rivers and are causing a decline in habitat quality and number of mature individuals of S. aradensis.
