Conservation: Chirostoma jordani is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2018). The species is widespread and while it is possibly declining in parts of its range, it is not thought that any global population decline is likely. Chirostoma jordani is however threatened by habitat degradation in part of its range. A study of the Rio Lerma drainage concluded that the basin has experienced a staggering amount of degradation during the 20th century (Soto Galera, 2019).
