This talk will discuss the question: To what extent are the fundamental groups of compact 3-manifolds determined (amongst the fundamental groups of compact 3-manifolds) by their finite quotients. We will discuss work that provides a positive answer for fundamental groups of hyperbolic 1-punctured torus bundles.
