Abstract: Let $ M$ be a closed $ 3$-manifold that is the total space of a fiber bundle with base $ {S^1}$ and fiber the closed $ 2$-manifold $ F$. Assume that genus $ (F) \geq 2$ if $ F$ is orientable, and that genus $ (F) \geq 3$ if $ F$ is nonorientable. We say that $ M$ has unique fiber over $ {S^1}$ if, for any fibering of $ M$ over $ {S^1}$ with fiber $ F'$, we have $ F' \cong F$. We prove that $ M$ has unique fiber over $ {S^1}$ if and only if rank $ ({H_1}(M;{\mathbf{Z}})) = 1$. In the case that rank $ ({H_1}(M;{\mathbf{Z}})) \ne 1,M$ fibers over $ {S^1}$ with fiber any of infinitely many distinct closed surfaces.
