Abstract: Given a non-singular variety with a K3 fibration $\pi \colon X\to S$ we construct dual fibrations $\hat {\pi }\colon Y\to S$ by replacing each fibre $X_s$ of $\pi$ by a two-dimensional moduli space of stable sheaves on $X_s$. In certain cases we prove that the resulting scheme $Y$ is a non-singular variety and construct an equivalence of derived categories of coherent sheaves $\Phi \colon \operatorname {D}(Y)\to \operatorname {D}(X)$. Our methods also apply to elliptic and abelian surface fibrations. As an application we use the equivalences $\Phi$ to relate moduli spaces of stable bundles on elliptic threefolds to Hilbert schemes of curves.
