    Epinephelus chlorostigma is a fairly widespread and relatively abundant species that inhabits reefs in both shallow and deep waters. There are signs of localised declines due to fishing effort in some areas, particularly in the Seychelles, and suspected declines in others (Indonesia). Catches of this species are generally low in comparison to other groupers in many parts of its range, which may be a function of its deeper depth preference. Population declines are not suspected on a global level at this time; therefore, it is listed as Least Concern. It is recommended that catches, particularly in areas where groupers are lumped, should be monitored carefully and frequently to provide more species-specific quantitative information.
