Abstract : Various quantitative techniques have been development recently for the economic assessment and valuation of instream flows. These techniques are discussed in detail in both the preface and the bibliography of this paper. The discussion focuses on instream flows as a renewable natural resource that provides unique habitat values for a wide variety of terrestrial and aquatic wildlife. The aquatic wildlife values inherent in the preservation of instream flows are closely connected with the recreational uses of the resource. Hence many of the technical discussions in the literature and much of the discussion given here deal with the application of recreation economics to the valuation of publicly owned riverine recreation sites.
