Surface agitation is to cause movement at the top of the water to prevent stagnating pockets that will cause a film to form on it. Making movement at the surface helps with gas exchange.

exactly what she said. basically, it's where bubbles from your airstone or filter current make the surface of your tank water move and not be still and flat. in case you wanted to know how to make it happen

You want something to break the water of the surface.

It could be water flow from the filter or bubbles, but you want something to disturb the water and allow oxygen to get into the tank.

This will make the dissolved oxygen levels better for the fish.

Most filters have enough for fish to like comfortably.
