Résumé :
Il y aurait plus de saumons si on construisait plus d’écloseries. Pour en financer la construction, les exploitants de bateaux de pêche commerciale et les pêcheurs sportifs devraient payer une « taxe d’écloserie ». Les pêcheurs récupéreraient ces paiements en prenant plus de poissons, eux-mêmes issus des écloseries.

Représentations :
I have a suggestion I would like to call Salmon Ranching.
It seem to me if more hacheries whhere built there would be more wild salmon. So the question is how to pay for the Hatcheries.
If all Fishing boats in the area where the hatchery is are require to provide a catch share to the hatchery that would cover the cost. Call it a hatchery tax on wild salmon.
Have it also be pat of the recreational licensing for each area. Then the hatcheries become a businessand are self supporting. As the salmon stocks grow so do the income for the fishermen and the hatcheries.

You quoted "efficiently produce fish protein", but you are denying the fact that wild salmon are the only efficient way to produce fish protein. Here's the reality of farmed salmon: a huge carbon footprint to harvest the little fishes from the ocean, process it, ship it etc. and the other truth is this- it takes over 2kg of wild fish to produce 1 kg of farmed salmon. This is NOT efficient. The world now has a net loss of protein due to the manufacturing of farmed salmon.
Truth and science and numbers don't lie but salmon farmers do.

May sound easy, but there is already 6 billion + ranched salmon released into the ocean each year to outcompete wild salmon.

All it does is put a band-aid on the real issue of protecting habitat and tightly regulating fishing on all sides of the borders.

From an ecological stand point, and to efficiently produce fish protein, it makes more sense to hold fish captive (farming) than to release them into the wild.
