Conservation status

Little is known about the conservation status of scaphopods. With presumably wide-ranging but ill-defined distributions of individual species, there are few instances where population estimates can be made, and where monitoring of those populations can have significant consequences for conservation measures. As members of shallow water marine ecosystems, scaphopods are usually only a small component of local diversity, and so are not the focus of key-species studies. No species is listed by the IUCN.
