I believe you've asked this question before but I'll respond once more.

It doesn't really mean anything except that he is taking in air to his swim bladder to keep himself buoyant is all. Sometimes they need more air and other times they don't so they expel little bubbles from their gills or their mouths when they took in too much air into their swim bladder. Nothing harmful or meaning that something is off; all very normal behavior.
