Do tilapia produce more odor in indoor systems?

I raise tilapia and other species in indoor recirculating systems in my basement. This year it's been much cooler than normal outside so I haven't removed them from their winter indoor tank and liberated them into my outdoor ponds for weed control yet. The other day the wife and I noticed the house smelled and I traced it to the tilapia tank in the basement. 

I don't believe I've had this issue with my other species or it may be a matter of the fish load in the tilapia tank which is quite high. 

Did a major water change of both my basement tanks (other tank has black crappie and bluegills) and cleaned the respective filters although I clean the mechanical filters on a weekly basis.  Odor has gone away at least for the time being.
