Since opening in 1973, over 50 million trout have been raised at the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery. Trout are raised from egg to fry and stocked into over 200 different lakes across the province as a part of Alberta's fish stocking program.

The Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery is one of four provincially-operated fish culture facilities, and is a key element in Alberta’s Fish Stocking Program.
