I don't have the equivalent map for Eurasia, but it's a good guess. A quick
perusal of a couple eurasian fish books and some poking about on FishBase
seems to support this hypothesis.

Speaking of fish books, I recently bought Maitland, P.S. 2000. Guide to
freshwater fish of Britain and Europe. Hamlyn Publ., London. Pretty
inexpensive, mostly excellent illustrations (though slightly stylized to
exaggerate some of the important features), and what seems to be relatively
comprehensive coverage... if you have an interest in European fishes, it's
worth picking up.
