Aguanish is a municipality and village in the C te-Nord region of the province of Quebec in Canada.In addition to Aguanish itself, the municipality also includes the community of L' le-Michon, 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) to the east along Route 138. Economic activity primarily centers on crab and salmon fishing.The place is named after the Goynish or Aguanus River, that flows through and drains into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence right at the village. This word of Innu origin came from aguanus, in turn from akwanich, from the roots akwan (shelter) and ich (small). It has undergone many different spellings, including: Goines (17th century); Guanis, Goinis (1744 map by Bellin); Goynish (1776 map by Carver); Agwanus, Aguanus or Agouanus (maps of the 19th century).
