Setting a new Guinness World Record, the Sushi mosaic was the Norwegian Seafood Export Council’s way of celebrating the arrival of the 10 millionth Norwegian salmon to China on 15 October.

The world’s largest sushi mosaic was comprised of 8,374 pieces of sushi made mainly from Norwegian salmon, but also from mackerel, cod and prawns.

Covering a massive 20.13 m2, the mosaic was prepared with 120 kilograms of rice and 65 kilograms of Norwegian salmon, and only took 6 hours and 15 minutes to complete.

The idea of making a sushi mosaic came naturally, because Chinese people usually consume vast quantities of Norwegian salmon in sushi and sashimi.

Thousands of visitors enjoyed the delicacies from the mosaic, after adjudicator Wu Xiaohong certified it as a new Guinness World Record.

The sushi mosaic represented bilateral relations between Norway and China by artistically featuring the two countries’ flags in a heart-shape.
