Abstract: The acknowledgement of the economic and social weight of the natural assets used for recreational use naturally resulted in the question of their valuation. The Contingent Valuation Method and the Travel Cost Method appeared as the main ways of estimating the benefits connected with a non-trade use of these assets. Being used mostly in a competitive way, the idea of their combination is relatively recent and establishes a promising way to improve the valuation process. So, we propose here the Contingent Travel Cost Method to estimate the benefits the footfishermen of Brittany could attribute to the restoration of their sites of shellfishing which are exposed to damages that might make shell-eaters seriously ill. Classification JEL : Q26, D12, D80, Q25.
