Abstract: This paper is part of a series involving the AMIGA project (Analysis of the Interstellar Medium of Isolated GAlaxies). This project provides a statistically-significant sample of the most isolated galaxies in the northern sky. We present a study of the nuclear activity in a well-defined sample of the most isolated galaxies (total sample: n=1050, complete subsample: n=719) in the local Universe traced by their far-infrared (FIR) and radio continuum emission. We use the well-known radio continuum-FIR correlation to select radio-excess galaxies that are candidates to host an active galactic nucleus (AGN), as well as the FIR colours to find obscured AGN-candidates. We also used the existing information on nuclear activity in the Veron-Cetty catalogue and in the NASA Extragalactic Database. A final catalogue of AGN-candidate galaxies has been produced that will provide a baseline for studies on the dependence of activity on the environment. Our sample is mostly radio quiet, consistent with its high content of late-type galaxies. At most ~1.5% of the galaxies show a radio excess with respect to the radio-FIR correlation, and this fraction even goes down to less than 0.8% after rejection of back/foreground sources using FIRST. We find that the fraction of FIR colour selected AGN-candidates is ~28% with a lower limit of ~7%. Our final catalogue contains 89 AGN candidates and is publicly available on the AMIGA web page (http://www.iaa.csic.es/AMIGA.html).
