Conservation: Aulonocara hueseri is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (VU) vulnerable (2006). Data is deficient. I believe there is no threat to this species and only its restricted distribution around Likoma Island may have triggered the Vulnerability state on the list.
