Functioning similarly to cybernetics, biotech items include modifications to your DNA combined with implants of biological origin that integrate into your physiology. Biotech mostly operates by the same rules as cybernetics and uses the same implantation slots.

Aqua-Empathic Lobe

Source Interstellar Species pg. 58
Item Level 4; Price 2,000; System Brain
Your brain has been modified with an additional lobe that grants you a limited form of telepathic communication with aquatic creatures. You can communicate with animals, magical beasts, plants, and vermin that don’t have a language and are native to aquatic biomes; this includes such creatures with the aquatic subtype and might also include other creatures at the GM’s discretion. This ability doesn’t make these creatures friendly. The range of this ability is 30 feet or the range of your telepathy or limited telepathy, whichever is larger. You can use language-dependent effects on these creatures, attempt Intimidate checks to bully them, and attempt Diplomacy checks to change their attitude.
