Ilisha fuerthii is a marine, coastal species with a wide distribution from El Salvador to northern Peru. Information relating to its population status and trend is limited. This species is important in minor commercial fisheries and is taken in subsistence and artisanal fisheries in parts of its range. No species-specific conservation measures are in place and no major threats are known at this time. Given that this species is widely distributed, with no major directed fisheries and a range that overlaps with existing marine protected areas, it is assessed as Least Concern.
