STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A large sum of money is being awarded for the Feed the Future Fish Innovation Lab at Mississippi State University.
U.S. Congressman Gregg Harper announced the award of more than $15.8 million during the next five years.
The goal of the Fish Innovation Lab is to reduce global hunger, malnutrition and poverty through science, technology and innovation.
“It is predicted that our world’s population will increase to more than 9 billion by the year 2050. That means that food production will have to increase by 60 to 70 percent in order to feed the world,” Harper said.
