This is the first comprehensive list of sharks, batoids (rays and skates) and chimaeras recorded from the waters of Russia and adjacent territories. This includes scientific names, common names (English, Russian in Latin transcription, Japanese and Czech), taxonomic comments, if necessary, distribution, synonymy and conservation status. From Russia and the border areas, 40 species of sharks, 59 species of batoids and 7 species of chimeras that belong to the two classes (Elasmobranchii and Holocephali), 11 orders, 29 families, 5 subfamilies and 54 genera have been recorded over the last hundred years.
