They already are. Aggressively. Ask any fisherman in SE Alaska. We have seen them feeding among the seine fleet sets and following the trollers.
One hatchery operator told us they seem to know the release schedule and wait outside the pens. They can swallow an entire release - thousands of salmon - in one gulp.
Then there are the sea lions and Orcas (They still call them Killer Whales in Alaska). Top level predators all competing for the same food supply.
