Conservation: Haplochromis sp. 'chipwa' is not evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species. Species is not evaluated by the IUCN

Even though the current known distribution is relatively small, concerns for the species are low since the inaccessibility of the area and the considerably natural state of Kalambo and Lufubu rivers.
