Salmon is the codename given to a destroyer used by the National Protection Process.
Alongside some other destroyers, Salmon was named after the fish of the same name.
Salmon is not only a destroyer but it is also an escort ship that is probably among the destroyers used to protect the more vulnerable Mackeral which is not quite so nimble and far more vulnerable. It may be a destroyer, but the destroyer can move like a fishing boat to a degree; it is also unique among destroyers alongside Haddock because both are modeled on escort vessels.
