The Elmendorf State Hatchery started in 1965 with three small circular wooden ponds. The present facility was built in 1976 and has 21; 10' X 60' concrete or aluminum rearing ponds called raceways. An agreement with the Elmendorf Air Force Base allows the hatchery to take excess heated water from the base power plant and combine it with surface water from Ship Creek to maintain a year-round rearing program.
