Fish is your only local food source and not a particularly plentiful one. As your population grows, you'll have to import other foods. You'll need to mine enough gold or export enough goods to cover the cost of feeding your people.
You can also mine copper, which fetches a good price, and you can use the excess to make weapons for your soldiers. You shouldn't need too many soldiers as long as you have a strong navy.
Expect invasions from the Kushites starting early in the mission. They are not the strongest seafarers, and initially one or two of your warships should be able to thwart any invasions by water. As time passes, though, the Kushites will send larger and stronger forces, so be prepared to repel them.
Since you can't ferry directly to the largest section of land, think about building in distinct phases. Develop a small, self-sustaining community on the land near the kingdom road. Once that's up and running, you can do the same across the water on the land to the south. From there you can finally expand onto the largest tract of land, taking advantage of the rich ore resources to start making some real money.
Watch for requests for granite and copper.
