Rather than looking at range maps _per se_, you could consult various museum
fish collections to see if they have collections from various areas. You can
access about 8 of the larger North American collections on line through a
searchable database called FishGopher. One way to access this is through the
web site of the Ichthyology department at the Museum of Comparative Zoology
at Harvard, which URL is (if I remember correctly) / or,
alternatively, through / and follow links. You can search
FishGopher for genus, species, collector, and location. And I'm sure there
are other, easier, access ramps...
