Conservation: Herichthys deppii is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2018). Although Herichthys deppii has a high resilience and the habitat remains relatively pristine, fishing by local people, currently regularly using spear guns directed to breeding pairs is intense and the distribution range is rather small, so I believe it is important to monitor the population of H. deppii, which over the years has apparently decreased in number.
