ThreatsThreats to this species reported by Bleher (1994) include:
- Exploitation: fish is the main diet for people in the area and the human population has increased. Traditional fishing methods have been superseded by the use of poison (tigaw, labo, towa) and dynamite, which kill almost everything (including the fry).
- Earthquakes: the 1955 earthquake shifted the lake to the west.
- Introduced predatory fishes.
