Sounds like your issue is avoiding SWB while freediving. To be safer I would:

1. weight myself to be negative at about 25 ft so if you experience SWB you stand a chance of floating to the surface

2. make sure you have a proper surface interval between freedives. Also avoid hyperventalation and work in teams if you are trying to free up a stuck fish.
