The grass carp, W = 2.49 ± 0.34g, were distributed among five 350 L tanks connected to a RAS and/or into three (1500 m2) ponds (P group). After 165 days, the survival rate was significantly higher in the RAS group, 97.8 ± 0.5%, compared to 10.9 ± 11.4% in P group. The grass carp in a RAS during the first winter significantly improved survival and good conditions of juvenile for subsequent ongrowing period. The RAS provided production profit compare to loss in P group. Keywords : RAS, Pond culture, Overwintering, Cyprinids, Fish production
