PRESSURES

SOLUTIONS

American Mink have been most recently recorded on this water body in 2011. American Mink cause a wide range of problems on a river, including playing a large part in the local extinction of many natural species such as water voles and kingfishers.

In order to eradicate Mink, they must be trapped and dispatched of. Trapping must be done catchment wide as mink can travel large distances. It is important that there are enough people involved in a trapping project to ensure that the traps can be checked regularly. Monitoring mink, water vole and otter presence on your river can also help us when planning eradication programmes.

 

 

There is no data due to a lack of monitoring within this water body.
