The Fur Advisory Council was created by the Louisiana Legislature in 2008 and placed within the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

The primary goal of the Council is to examine, evaluate, and make recommendations concerning habitat managment, harvest, and marketing to enhance the future of the industry and perpetuate the conservation of species. Further goals are to educate the public concerning the fur industry and to strengthen domestic and international markets for Louisiana furs.

The Council consists of nine members. Seven members are appointed by the secretary and consists of a cross section of trappers and coastal landowners from around the state. One member is appointed by the speaker of the House of Representatives and another by the president of the Senate.
