Justification of Red List category
Despite the poor historical records and the current lack of data across all populations to assess the global population, there is now enough evidence to confirm that its population has been strongly affected by the fisheries operating in Australia and that the population on Lord Howe and Sandy Islands (Australia) and Lady Alice Island (New Zealand) is declining. Based on this evidence, it is suspected that the population has declined by at least 20-29% over three generations. Thus the species is classified as Near Threatened.
