    Abstract This report presents the results of an instream flow
    incremental methodology (IFIM) study on two reaches of the
    Waikanae River. The study forms part of an ongoing
    programme to review the minimum flows in the Regional
    Freshwater Plan for the Wellington Region (Regional
    Freshwater Plan) (Wellington Regional Council, 1999).

    The purpose of the study was to assess whether the
    current minimum flow can safeguard the life-supporting
    capacity of the river. It also investigates the different
    amounts of aquatic habitat availability which can vary
    with the flow of the river, focusing on the current low
    flow conditions of habitat availability.
