Dr. Jurgenne Primavera focuses on broodstock development and pond grow out culture of shrimp, Penaeus monodon. She produced a number of publications on P. monodon culture, such as induced maturation and spawning by eyestalk ablation, ovarian rematuration of ablated P. monodon, feeding regimes, and others. These publications led to the development and improvement of seed production, hatchery operations, and pond culture of P. monodon in the country. Her dedication and excellent performance on shrimp culture research and development earned her numerous awards at the international, national, and local levels. Dr. Primavera was a recipient of the 2005 Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation by the Pew Institute of Ocean Science. In line with her advocacy for the development of aquaculture ponds in mangrove areas, she developed educational materials and provided thesis grants to students in the provinces of Iloilo and Aklan where mangrove loss is severe. She also actively promotes the improvement of government protection of mangroves and enforcement of current regulations. Dr. Primavera has a Doctorate of Philosophy, honoris causa, from the Faculty of Science, Stockholm University.
