According to the documentary, grayling fishes are known for their distinctive dorsal fins. These fins made them earn the name “Lady of the Streams”. Male grayling fishes have darker colors. To determine who will father their next generation, male grayling fishes engage in a natural competition.
Two male grayling fish will compete for the attention of a female grayling fish. They will bite and body slam each other. Once the perfect match is made, the winning fish will defend the female and start courting her. To do so, the male grayling fish will raise its dorsal fins to encourage the female to breed. They will rub up on each other until their force digs into the gravel. When enough depth is made, the female will lay her eggs there and the spawning is finished.
