 family), and closely allied to the smelt. Graylings are found chiefly in clear, cold, fresh waters of the Northern Hemisphere. They average 1 ft (30 cm) in length and 1 lb (.45 kg) in weight and exhibit hues of silver, gold, violet, blue, and olive brown. The arctic grayling, which can reach more than 8 lb (3.6 kg), was found in Michigan and Montana as well as Canada, Alaska, and Siberia, but the Michigan population is now extinct.
