Mink Code 5-year Review 

The mink Code was released in 2013. A 5-year review was completed by a Code Technical Panel in 2018.

The Code Technical Panel’s recommendation for the mink Code of Practice is: Code amendments be initiated.

*Proposed timeline for Code amendments: January 2019.

Major challenges identified that warrant Code amendments include:

  • Pen sizes
  • Access to nest boxes
  • Reference to the proper method of catching a mink and lifting from its pen
  • Euthanasia methods
