Zhou Fang (d. 240?), courtesy name Ziyu (子魚), was an Eastern Wu general during the Three Kingdoms period. In 228, he was a main actor in a famous confrontation between Eastern Wu and its larger rival, Cao Wei, when he pretended to surrender to Cao Wei to induce the Cao Wei general Cao Xiu into a trap, and Eastern Wu forces were able to deal Cao Wei forces a major defeat. This battle was called the Battle of Shiting. His son Zhou Chu (周處) later became a famous general during Jin Dynasty.
