The river’s modern name Moisie, meaning “marshy banks,” was given by French explorers. The native Innu however call the River Mish-te-shipu, or “great river.” For centuries, it was one of the main waterways the Innu used to reach their wilderness hunting, fishing and trapping territories in Northern Québec.
The Moisie is one of the biggest wild rivers in the province of Québec. It boasts a significant population of large Atlantic salmon weighing 7 kg (15 pounds) on average."
