The Ganymede sea rat is an endangered species of mammal that lives on Ganymede. A dish made from this animal became a staple food for local fisherman during the early years of terraforming the moon. A wider selection of foods became available when the Astral Gate system stabilized, and the sea rat fell from popularity. It was still eaten afterwards for those who could afford it, and could have been seen as a status symbol.

The eco-terrorist organization Space Warriors began to protest the harvesting of the sea rat. They made hats that bore the likeness of the animal and wore them in their attacks. They demanded the prohibition of their harvesting, and were partially successful, as the ISSP chief drove a law to limit their harvesting.[1]
