This study describes the diet of European mink (Mustela lutreola) in Northern Spain. The diet was analysed from 105 European mink samples. Moreover, we collected other 37 faeces from a radiotracked European mink male. The European mink diet was based on small mammals (relative frequency of occurrences 36,9%), fish (30,6%) and birds (17,8%). The Levins index of trophic-niche width was 3,76. Wood mouse Apodemus sylvaticus was the most consumed small mammal and Cyprinids -mainly Barbus sp. was the most consumed fish. The average size and weight of consumed fish were 13,5 cm and 31,5 g, respectively and males consumed larger and heavier fish than females.

Key Words: European mink,; diet,; Mustela lutreola,; Spain.
