Juvenile grayling were preliminarily weighed, inspected and counted by total count method at the fish farm Maltat LLC, where they were raised upon request of Gazprom Nedra LLC. The grayling were delivered to the site of release into the Yenisey River near the village of Yesaulovo in the Berezovsky District using a specialised car with aeration, supervised by a fish breeder specialist. The release site was not random: it offers the most comfortable conditions for juveniles — clear water, a rocky bottom and minimal chance of encountering natural enemies.
