Notes

Sascha has volunteered on and off since 2004 and has also worked in paid positions at the museum.

His current research interests include the rockpool fishes of the Illawarra, fish species diversity and ecology, and the biology of the Bastard Trumpeter. 

Born in Germany, Sascha migrated to Australia in 1988 with his parents and sister. He soon discovered that the waters around Tathra were home to a fascinating range of creatures.

After moving to Wollongong to study Electrical Engineering, he became interested in underwater photography. Upon finishing his engineering degree in 2002, he decided one degree was not enough, and has now added a Marine Biology degree to his CV.

His current research interests include the rockpool fishes of the Illawarra, fish species diversity and ecology, and the biology of the Bastard Trumpeter.

Examples of Sascha’s photographs can be found on the fact sheets for the Rock Blackfish, Southern Red Scorpionfish and Blue Angelfish.
