Trident should be a more well-guarded artifact much the elytra or beacon. To acquire the trident the player should be faced with more of a challenge.
My suggestion a mini-boss (about the same strength as an elder guardian) or boss. It is a monstrous fish-like creature the lives in the frozen ocean. If you go the route of a boss, the boss should have a relationship like the wither and wither-skeletons with guardians. Give guardians a rare drop to spawn the beast.
I do believe drowned should still throw tridents but not drop them. I simply wish for more effort to be needed to acquire such a powerful weapon because right now you can get a trident on day 1
