Nutria refers to a large semi-aquatic rodent that is indigenous to South America which has become one of the food sources for people of Louisiana. Nutria was imported into Louisiana for its fur industry, however, over decades Nutria extensively damaged the state’s coastal wetlands, so officials decided to promote Nutria as a cheap and readily available food source.
