The hypothesis of a tiny fraction of the cosmic inventory evolving cosmologically as a degenerate Fermi gas test fluid at some dominant cosmological background is investigated. Our analytical results allow for performing preliminary computations to the evolution of perturbations for relativistic and non-relativistic test fluids. The density fluctuation, δ, the fluid velocity divergence, θ, and an explicit expression for the dynamics of the shear stress, σ, are obtained for a degenerate Fermi
