Conservation: Chetia brevis is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (EN) endangered (2017). Chetia brevis is threatened by water abstraction, pollution and siltation from agriculture, as well as by introduction of alien species within its limited native range. It has therefore been translocated into protected habitats within the Inkomati drainage, including dams in the Kruger National Park. A negative impact on native fishes is not expected. Chetia brevis seems to flourish in the dams (de Moor & Bruton 1988, Skelton 2001).
