Sascha Rust

Good Fish Program Manager

Location: Melbourne

Early in his life Sascha got the chance to experience our Far North Queensland coast and Great Barrier Reef which kicked off a long love for our oceans. Having grown up in a family surrounded by good food however it was almost inevitable that he would end up working with it. He is chef, past-owner of multiple award winning restaurants and has spent many years consulting and working on food related projects.

Fascinated by the anthropological side of food, he has a history of supporting grass roots action that re-connect people with the land (and now sea) as a sustainable food source, leading him to undertake an MSc of Environment and Sustainability with a focus on food systems and sustainability leadership. Since 2018, Sascha has lead the GoodFish Project, working with chefs, restaurants, fishers and wholesalers around the country to improve their understanding of the environmental challenges of our oceans and celebrate their commitments to no longer serve unsustainable seafood.
