stone loaches in Europe

I am looking to contact aquarists in Italy, Greece and Turkey (or any part of the mediterranean) to get samples of Stone Loach of the genus Barbatula from these countries. I am a fisheries scientist in the UK working for the conservation of loaches in Europe. One of the basic needs for conservation is the correct identification of species so that the appropriate protection can be provided. I am really lacking samples from Italy, Greece and Turkey and if anyone can help I would be really grateful.
