Lorica for black tiger shrimp


  • Fosters the immune system of the host
  • Supports shrimp facing bacterial challenges
  • Stabilises the microflora of the host

Shrimp can be exposed to various challenges throughout the life cycle. Nutrition and functional feeds can play a vital role in maintaining shrimp health. Lorica is Skretting's prime functional feed for farmed shrimp, enhancing resistance and immunity.

Lorica is a Proactive functional feed. It contains a complex profile of innovative functional ingredients which safeguard shrimp during challenging phases. It is based on three pillars: Shield, Support and Balance. It helps to shield natural defenses of the shrimp, it supports the immune system and optimises the balance between shrimp, microbes and environment.


Lorica is available in Ecuador, Honduras, China and Vietnam and exported to other countries in Asia and Latin America.

About Lorica


Strengthening essential barriers

Lorica supports the primary defences of shrimp from environmental threats. It also acts to improve the structure of the digestive tract and hepatopancreas, and their ability to resist pathogens.

Functional ingredients

Lorica diets contain a complex profile of innovative functional ingredients designed to safeguard shrimp during challenging phases in their life cycle, including transfer and handling.

Population safeguarding

Improved shielding of a shrimp from pathogenic bacteria not only improves the viability of that individual but reduces the potential of release of bacteria to infect other shrimp. This concept reduces the epidemic potential of an infection outbreak.


Enhanced immune systems

Lorica’s unique formulations deliver invaluable support to the immune responses of shrimp. They also enable shrimp to be better able to cope with stress factors, such as pathogenic challenges.

Safeguarding nutrients

Lorica supports the integrity and function of the hepatopancreas to maintain optimal nutrient absorption.


Withstanding threats

Lorica tips the balance in favour of the shrimp in the battle against hostile microbes and environmental threats by supporting immunological and structural mechanisms.

Easing bacterial impacts

Lorica’s component ingredients work together to assist shrimp health. They attack harmful bacteria to reduce their numbers and also inhibit communication among bacteria to limit their impact.
