Caguamanta is a typical Mexican seafood dish made with manta ray and shrimp. It is usually prepared as soup, containing manta ray, shrimp and vegetables. It also can be prepared as tacos. When the broth is served alone, it is called bichi taken from the Yaqui language word that means "naked."

Originally, the main ingredient was sea turtle (caguama), but due to it being placed on the endangered species list its hunting has been outlawed. Since then, manta ray and shrimp have become the main ingredients.

This food was first served in the city of Los Mochis, Sinaloa.
