A recent international collaborative effort was directed at quantifying the risks and benefits of fish consumption. A nonparametric continuous–discrete Bayesian belief network was constructed to support these calculations. The same Bayesian belief network has enabled calculation of the expected benefits of further research directed at shrinking the uncertainties and prioritization of possible research efforts.
