The stimulated Raman scattering instability in a fully degenerate electron plasma is studied applying relativistic hydrodynamic and Maxwell equations. We demonstrated that the instability develops for weakly and strongly relativistic degenerate plasmas. It is shown that in the field of strong radiation, a degenerate relativistic plasma effectively responses as in the case of weak degeneracy.
