Seatroopers were Imperial stormtroopers trained to operate in aquatic environments. In 18 BBY, seatroopers participated in the aftermath of the Battle of Dac City on Mon Cala after all surface cities were destroyed and Imperial forces were destroyed. At one point a few years prior to the Battle of Yavin, seatroopers on Lothal stood by during an aquatic training exercise for Imperial cadets.
Like standard stormtroopers, they wore white armor. They were also equipped with breathing tubes that were attached to a scuba backpack to their helmets and had underwater propulsion jets on their backs. They utilized flippers and were equipped with blaster rifles and used OMS Devilfish subs.
