Some fish, such as bettas, make their own bubbles. I'm not an expert on bubble nests, but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

Running a power head close to the surface might help if you dislike the bubbles that much, but not all fish appreciate a hard current.

If you're running anything with an airstone that would be an obvious culprit.

I just went through that. Culprit was over feeding I am sure of it. Its caused by excess protein build up. Solution, few extra water changes and I added Purigen to filter, bubbles gone.
