Conservation: Astatotilapia flaviijosephi is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (VU) vulnerable (2014). Based on the most recent assessment by the IUCN, Astatotilapia flaviijosephi is regarded as endangered citing a restricted range and population decline due to pollution and drought. This is especially prevalent in riverine populations while drought induced lake level fluctuations are the largest threat to lacustrine habitat.
