Against whale hunting?

I'm doing an argumentative essay on whale hunting. I'm not sure about my thesis statement; my teacher says it can't show opinion, such as "Whaling is cruel and unnecessary" and has to be based on sound facts with information. What are the top arguments against commercial whale hunting that would make a good thesis statement? All answers are helpful :)

    not a lot of Japanese even eat whale anymore. i don’t know if that would count as unnecessary, but why kill so much if it’s going to go to waste?

    Something like:”Is whale hunting commercially viable?”And, then look at it from a practical point of view:Are there markets for the meat? Is there any part of a whale that is marketable beside the meat?Is the population of any species sustainable for harvest? Etc.

    You’re going to have to do some real research on this, and I’m no expert, but I think one of the arguments against whaling is that it is endangering the population of certain whale species, bringing them to near extinction. “Unnecessary” is bad phrasing, but could be reworded to say, if its true, that there are alternative products to those obtained from whaling.

    Hello, Envision the Makah nation before white men came to reduce their lands, diminished their way of life, and contaminate them with new diseases. The Makah tribe was once free to roam along the dark sandy beaches of the Olympic Peninsula and experience the fiery glow of the sinking sun creep into the depths of the vast Pacific Ocean. They are no longer able to undergo this majestic cycle in the same tranquility that their ancestors once did. After dealing with the inequities that were brought upon them by the European settlers, such as being forced to speak a new language and being confined to a minute area of land, that cannot compare to the greatness of the territory where they once lived. On top of that their traditional whale hunt was abstracted from their community. Now with the chance to hunt again, the Makah faced a difficult decision against the opposition. The Makah tribe decided to return to hunting the whale in attempt to restore their culture and traditions. They agreed not to use the hunt for commercial purposes and to hunt the whale in the same way their ancestors did. I think the Makah nation should be able to hunt the whale as means of renewing their culture and pride. The whale hunt provides the Makah with the ability to restore their culture and traditions, provide reparations for America’s mistreatment, all while following strict guidelines for the crew and the process of taking the whale.

    Includes facts instead of opinions. Instead of saying “Whaling is cruel and unnecessary” say “Whaling has lead to the endangerment of many whale species and has led and will lead to many trajedies that effect both the environment and humans.”Do you notice how I mentioned only facts? I didn’t mention my personal opinion, I mentioned facts and in the essay I will back up my thesis with evidence.
