GATO departed Milne Bay 2 February 1944 to conduct her eighth war patrol in the Bismarck-New Guinea-Truk area. She sank a trawler, a transport, and a cargo ship. Two other trawlers were destroyed by her gunfire before she returned to Pear Harbor. She sank a coast defense ship on 14 February 1944 and cargo ship on 21 February, and then returned to Guam. GATO decommissioned 16 March 1946.
