1. Demographic data on an invasive species of management concern, the American mink, are presented. Data were obtained on three feral mink populations in Europe distinguished by differences in the time elapsed since population establishment. 2. Demographic data are presented in the form of life tables, age-sex distributions and sex ratios. Mink lived a maximum of 6 years, and mortality of 1-year-olds and adults differed substantially between populations. 3. The data support the hypothesis that mink populations subject to culling have a higher proportion of young (less than 1 year old) to adults compared with non-culled populations. © 2006 Mammal Society.
