Perhaps, fishery protection ships were unique ships of Danish Navy, intended for operations in high seas, though, of course, it is very difficult to consider them as rigorous warships. They represented very variegated company: huge, to Danish measures, Ingolf with more than 1000t displacement, armed with 120mm guns and carrying a seaplane, and small 80t Ternen with 37mm gun.
1930s: - 2 x 1 - 37/20; + 1 x 1 - 57/40 M.1885, 1 x 1 - 47/40 M.1885
