One of my blog readers has also identified it as a rattail or grenadier. There's an article on it in Wikipedia and the picture looks like the same fish.

Looks like a deep sea Rat Tail fish of the family Macrouridae. The fact that it's eyes and swim bladder are distended suggests it was line caught or surfaced rapidly.
