'scaphe <breathe>

Hello everyone. From Peter Watts' Starfish sci-fi book:

"Joel Kita's used to
hearing a 'scaphe breathe around him, hearing it talk in clicks and hisses. He relies on those sounds; the readouts only confirm what the beast has already told him by the grumbling of its stomach."

I can't figure out what 'scaphe means. Can anyone help?

Thank you.
