Hi Chris,

I am the curator at ZFIN responsible for the anatomy ontology.  If the 
below suggestions are not sufficient, please don't hesitate to email us 
with specific questions.

One atlas that is very helpful is the Mueller and Wulliman "Atlas of 
early zebrafish brain development" Elsevier, 2005. The ISBN number is 
0444517383. It has many sections and expression domains at 2, 3, and 5dpf.

Another good contact would be Tom Hawkins, thomas.hawkins from ucl.ac.uk, in 
Steve Wilson's Lab, who is working on annotation of the zebrafish brain.
