Established in 2013, the Global Center for Aquatic Health and Food Security (GCAHFS) aims to reduce world hunger through research that supports sustainable aquaculture and ecological health of aquatic resources. The GCAHFS also works to protect and manage health of aquatic animals, including marine mammals and endangered species, such as dolphins and sea turtles. The center supports both domestic and international projects in a wide range of natural and social science areas.
Dr. Mark Lawrence is the director and Dr. Stephen Reichley is the associate director of the Global Center for Aquatic Health and Food Security. This Center is affiliated with the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine and has many active, wide-ranging projects related to aquatic health and food security with activities around the world.
