Shanghai World Expo – World’s largest sushi mosaic set world record 2011
To mark the arrival of the 10 millionth Norwegian salmon to China, the Norwegian Seafood Export Council (NSEC) created a sushi mosaic featured 8,374 pieces of sushi made from different types of seafood, primarily salmon, but also cod, mackerel and shrimp – setting the new world record for the largest sushi mosaic at the Shanghai World Expo.
The record breaking sushi mosaic used 120kg of rice and 65kg of Norwegian salmon, and took six hours and 15 minutes to complete.
Guinness World Records adjudicator Wu Xiaohong, confirmed the new world record and presented a certificate to confirm the feat.
NESC’s mosaic bested India’s Guinness World Record-certified champion from 2008, when 5,814 sushi pieces were used to spell the word Mumbai over 15.16 square meters.
