Essex Rivers Hub

American Mink have been most recently recorded on this water body in 2008 . 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. 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.
