Năvodari is a town in Constanţa County, region of Dobrogea, Romania, with a population of 32,400. The town formally includes a territorially distinct community, Social Group Peninsula, and administers the neighbouring village of Mamaia-Sat.EtymologyThe name of the town means "trawlers" in Romanian.HistoryThe settlement was mentioned for the first time in 1421 under the name Kara Koyun, to be renamed later on Karaköy or Carachioi . In 1927, the locality was again renamed to Năvodari and after five years, on 15 August 1932, it was granted commune status.The town developed during the communist regime as part of the industrialization program. In 1957, the superphosphate and sulfuric acid plant, also known as USAS, whose construction had started in 1954, was opened, paving the road towards the industrialization of the area and demographic growth. However, the factory polluted the Black Sea and Taşaul Lake with toxic dumps. In the 1990s, the pollution was greatly reduced as the factory was modernized.In 1968 the population of Năvodari exceeded 6,500 inhabitants. A law adopted that year granted the commune of Năvodari town status and placed the Mamaia Sat village under its administration.
