保育: Ptychochromis curvidens 被評鑑為國際自然保育聯盟瀕危物種紅皮書名單中的 (EN) 瀕危 (2004). According to Patrick de Rham (in litt.), the conservation status of Ptychochromis curvidens is difficult to assess. The species is not abundant anywhere within its range and exotic fishes, especially Oreochromis sp., are present in the region. However, several other native species persist in reasonable numbers and exotic species are not abundant, suggesting that the ecosystem remains relatively healthy. This is further indicated by a diverse aquatic flora recorded at many sample sites, where endemic plant species such as Aponogeton cf. bovinianus remain plentiful. Human populations in these remote and poorly accessible regions remain small, and fishing pressure is consequently also low (Stiassny & Sparks, 2006).
