Hopefully he isn't tasting the fish that was thrown on the floor...

Does gustar in Spanish come from taste in Latin?

Yes, and most Spanish words do. It's a Romance language.

The English also has "disgust" from old French desgoust (Modern French dégoût)

And "gustative" like in "gustative quality", from the French gustatif/gustative.
And "gustatory", made on the model of "olfactory".
