Well, what does fluid mosaic mean?

it is not a structure. It is a model to explain the dynamics of one of them. A Google search will quickly find the answer for you

mosaic fluid for plasma membrane structure..
it's like a bricks structure build ur wall..
in plasma membrane it refers to the complex structure of protein and lipid that compound membrane..

there r more in literatures.. go check it..

protein is not in continous sheath but in the form of globules and is floating in the ocean of lipids
dat iz to say dat the protein is arranged in mosaic manner
