The Guinness world record for the largest fish market was set by Tsukiji, part of the Tokyo Central market, Tokyo, Japan which imports over 450 varieties of marine products from 60 different countries.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most people gutting fish simultaneously: 1,000 - achieved by the people of Santoña, in Cantabria, Spain.
The World's Smallest Aquarium still contains plants and stones and is the home of some tiny zebra fish, which were added to it using a miniature net.
A syringe had to be used to fill it up with water to avoid disturbing the arrangement.
In 1996, Anatoly Konenko entered the Guinness World Records after making the world's tiniest ever book, a copy of Chameleon by Anton Chekhov that is smaller than a five pence coin.
"The tank was made out of curiosity," Mr Koneko explained.

"It is the world's smallest fish tank and holds only 10 ml of water.
"For reference, 5 ml is one teaspoon, so the aquarium can only hold two teaspoons worth of water."
He began developing miniature artwork in 1981 and can write on human hairs, grains of rice and poppy seeds.
Mr Konenko has also made an incredibly detailed ship in a bottle, which stands at just 0.25 mm high, and a pair of shoes smaller than a matchstick.
Some of his creations are worth as much as 50,000 euros, 44,000 pounds.
