Conservation: Xenotilapia flavipinnis is evaluated by the international union for the conservation of nature in the iucn red list of threatened species as (LC) least concern (2006). While Xenotilapia flavipinnis as a species is very abundant in its preferred habitat, some populations are under pressure from fishing with large seine-nets on the sandy beaches, making some beaches deprived of sand-dwelling species (Ad Konings, personal communication).
