The Batfish was constructed at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, launched May 5, 1943 under the sponsorship of Mrs. Nellie W. Fortier and commissioned on August 21, 1943. On October 14, the Batfish was pronounced ready for battle and embarked toward Pearl Harbor via the Panama Canal. The Batfish participated in seven war patrols, claimed a total of 15 ships sunk for 37,484 tons and damaged three other ships. Attend U.S.S. Batfish Living History Days for a fantastic display of WWII living history.
