This week, for the second year running, the Environment Agency has introduced grayling fish into the River Rother in Chesterfield, Stephanie Bateman writes for The Star.

This year’s 13,000 fish brings the total released to 21,000 to help restore the river’s population of grayling. The young fish, which are three months old, were released at three locations on the River Rother in Chesterfield.

Known to anglers as the ‘lady of the stream’, grayling is in the same family as salmon and trout and has a distinctive sail-like fin on the top of its body. Adult fish typically grow to 30cm in length, but can grow to more than 50cm and over 1kg in weight.
