Tried importing Longhurst regions shapefiles into Google Earth Engine, running into error:

Error: Unable to transform edge (179.998129, 90.000003 to -0.000936, 90.000003) from GEOGCS["GCS_WGS_1984", DATUM["D_WGS_1984", SPHEROID["WGS_1984", 6378137.0, 298.257223563]], PRIMEM["Greenwich", 0.0], UNIT["degree", 0.017453292519943295], AXIS["Longitude", EAST], AXIS["Latitude", NORTH]] PLANAR to EPSG:4326.

This occurs even after reprojecting the shapefile in ArcMap to WGS 1984 (suggested by this post. Wondering if it's data issue. I'm new to GEE and ArcMap.

You don't need to reproject shapefile in arcmap to ingest it in GEE. I downloaded ICES_ecoregions.zip from your first link and unpacked it. Afterward, I selected only the files showed in below image and packed again as *.zip. If you try to ingest with a file different to *.dbf, *.prj, *.shp or *.shx you always will have an error.

After packed as zip file, I ingested it in 11 minutes; as it can be observed in following image. It is also observed that Feature Collection was imported in a new script and it is a relatively huge file.
